Level of geography in the Canadian Internet Use Survey (CIUS)


I have a pair of researchers wanting to find out about Canadians’ internet use at a lower level of geography than is available in CIUS 2012 PUMF. They want information for eight communities.

Is there any way they could find out, for example, the proportion of people who use the web to shop online or read the news at a level of geography like that?


We do have CIUS 2012 data in the RDC’s if the client is interested in accessing the data please refer to the application process:

On the RDC files, the Census Metropolitan Areas (CMA) and Census Agglomerations (CA) are the lowest level of geography available to create reliable estimates.
